Ingredients

  • 2.25 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut toasted (see note)
  • 1 oz dark chocolate bar chopped (3,5 .), I used Hershey's Special Dark

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt and coconut). Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter for 30 seconds.
  • Add all sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add egg and both extracts and mix in well.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix in until just incorporated.
  • Stir in the chocolate chunks.
  • The dough will be crumbly, that's okay.
  • Cover the bowl with the dough and place in the fridge to chill, preferably overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Scoop two tablespoons of dough per cookie and roll in your hands into a smooth ball.
  • Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each.
  • Bake the cookies for 9 to 11 minutes. Cool on a sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer onto a cooling rack.

Notes

To toast the coconut: Place the coconut in a cast iron skillet and taste over a medium heat until fragrant and lightly browned. Keep an eye on it. You can toast the coconut in an oven, if you have experience with it - however I recommend the stove top method as it's easier to keep an eye on.
